Hello my angels 🙂
I hope you all are doing well! It’s been a hectic couple of weeks with Christmas being less than a month away. There’s a ton of things to do, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of sharing with you my Boxycharm for November 2018.

The theme for Boxycharm November 2018 is Goal Digger and it has a total of 5 items.
The box features:
Cover FX Glitter Drops in the shade Nova $44.00
Ace Beaute Grandoise Palette $24.99
Luxie Luminous Eye Set $21.00
Jonteblu Glittering Star Eyeliner $5.00
Lashaholic Lashes $14.99
Cover FX glitter drops is a liquid that consists of multi dimensional glitter. This can be used under or over makeup. I personally think the colour of this product is beautiful, however I’m not a fan of using glitter on my face. I have mixed this in with my foundation for a more glowy look but it didnt end up glowy at all. I could see all of the glitter through my foundation which isn’t a flattering look for me. I would think that this product is better suited for the body rather than the face. Dont get me wrong, this isn’t a bad product. It is exactly what it claims to be (glitter drops). This is just based on my personal preference.
Ace Beaute Grandoise palette is by far the best palette that Boxycharm has given for 2018 thus far. The shade selection is stunning. There are 4 shimmers and 4 matte shades. These shadows are highly pigmented, soft, smooth and buttery. Being as pigmented as these eyeshadows are, I was surprised at how effortlessly they blend. I adore this palette and can’t wait to try more items from this brand 🙂
The Luxie luminous eye set is a limited edition collaboration with Boxycharm. This set was exclusively made for Boxycharm. It has 4 mini brushes.
- The mini round brush is used for smudging or smoking out the lower lash line.
- The mini tapered brush is used to blend shades in the crease.
- The mini flat angled brush is used to blend out harsh lines or pack on cream products on the lid.
- The mini angled brush is used to add pops of colour to your brow bone or precisely place colour on the crease.
These are synthetic brushes that are super soft and fluffy. I have gotten Luxie brushes before and I love them. They are very high quality brushes. I love that these brushes are small,and given the fact that I have small eyes, these allow for me to precisely add colour and detail to the eyes.
Next we have the Jonteblu eyeliner. This is a traditional pencil that you would need to sharpen. It’s packed with flecks of glitter. I’m not a fan of this product, it was a bit scratchy on the water line. I have very sensitive eyes and the application of this hurt. It doesn’t glide on smoothly at all.
Lashaholic lashes in the shape Instagram is 100% vegan lashes made from premium silk fibers. This is a beautiful set of lashes that has some shorter and longer lengths. It adds volume and length to my lashes. It has a thicker band so I’m sure I’ll get good couple of uses from it. Its natural but at the same time glamorous.
Overall I am very happy with Novembers box. My favourite items from the box is the Ace Beaute palette and the Luxie brush set. If you have tried any of these products let me know your thoughts on them. I have loads of new content coming up soon so if you haven’t already, do subscribe to the blog for updates on new posts 🙂
Have a fantastic night/day 😉
